GDC Re-launches Cornwall Project

Real Estate In-Depth | June 15, 2016

CORNWALL—Ginsburg Development Companies announced the grand opening later of the new model homes at Stone Hollow at Cornwall, an enclave of 28 stylish single-family homes located in the quaint Hudson River community of Cornwall.

GDC Principal Martin Ginsburg told Real Estate In-Depth that his firm began the development just prior to the Great Recession, but discontinued sales there once the real estate downtown took hold.

The development firm, which is now concentrating on multifamily rental development projects in the Hudson Valley, recently decided to renew sales at the Cornwall property. New homes are priced at $395,000 and higher. The company recently sold the last unit at its other Orange County community, The Fairways at Wallkill, Ginsburg added.

Stone Hollow at Cornwall offers homebuyers an excellent alternative to the Westchester market, he noted. “Stone Hollow at Cornwall is ideal for those who want a beautifully designed and competitively priced single-family home in a picturesque community with excellent schools, great downtown shops and restaurants and a wide variety of nearby recreational opportunities,” said Ginsburg.

Stone Hollow at Cornwall offers three model homes designed to appeal to a wide range of buyers from young families to families with teens to empty-nesters, GDC stated. The three models—ranch, colonial and two-bedroom with first floor master bedroom—feature dramatic open floor plans with nine-foot ceilings on the first floor and pre-finished hardwood floors throughout first floor common areas. The eat-in kitchens boast maple cabinets, granite countertops and high quality GE appliances.

Bedrooms have wall-to-wall carpeting and generous closet space including multiple walk-in closets. The master bathrooms feature soaking tubs with ceramic tile surround, walk-in showers with semi-frameless enclosure and dual sinks. Fixtures and faucets are top quality Sterling/Kohler. Every home includes laundry room washer and dryer hook-ups.

The homes, which are located on half-acre and one-acre lots with private yards, feature low maintenance exteriors, extensive trim and an option to add stone. Energy efficient features include GE Energy Star appliances, high efficiency forced air gas heating and central air conditioning with programmable thermostat, insulated glass low-E windows and Therma-Tru fiberglass entry doors. Homes are wired for cable TV and phone outlets to allow for phone lines and high-speed data connection.

Stone Hollow at Cornwall offers a choice of three distinctive home designs.    The two-bedroom Aster ranch is a perfect home for empty-nesters. It offers 2,008 square feet of living space with an optional third bedroom. It also features an en suite master bedroom with two walk-in closets, and a generous mud and laundry room. The lower level and/or studio over the garage can be finished with an optional additional bathroom, GDC stated.

The Bayberry is a four-bedroom, 2 1/2 bath, center hall Colonial with over 3,400 square feet of living space with the optional finished lower level. This spacious home, which has a mudroom and extensive closet space, is ideal for a growing family and features a contemporary open floor plan on the main level.

The Cornwall offers a master bedroom on the main floor with two additional bedrooms upstairs, with an optional fourth bedroom, 2 1/2 baths and a dramatic great room. This 2,600-square-foot home, which is ideal for a family with teens, also offers an optional 1,100 additional square feet on the lower level.

Current GDC developments include: Riverside at Harbors-at Haverstraw, a 106-unit waterfront rental apartment community in Haverstraw; Harbor Square, a 188-unit luxury rental apartment project on the Ossining waterfront; The Lofts on Saw Mill River, a 66 unit loft-style apartment development in Hastings-on-Hudson; and River Tides at Greystone, a 330-unit luxury rental complex in Yonkers overlooking the Hudson River.
